Poetry Friday is hosted today by Tabatha Yeatts: The Opposite of Indifference.
For Poetry Friday -- "Sharingthe Seasons: a book of poems" selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins and illustrated by David Diaz.
Hopkins collects 12 poems for each season. The verses include familiar names such as J. Patrick Lewis "Alone in Winter" -- Marilyn Singer "April is a Dog's Dream" -- Carl Sandburg "Summer Homes" and works by Hopkins. Some of the poets may be less well known to readers providing an opportunity to discover new favorites.
Caldecott Medal winning illustrator and graphic designer, David Diaz brings his signature style to the artwork with illustrations that move through the seasons in shimmering colors that add a brilliantly imagined dimension to the text.
